Support and Links

GOSH (Gastro/Oesophageal Support & Help Group, Bristol)

This group is an initiative by former patients for current patients with oesophagus/stomach cancers and their carers. It aims to provide opportunities to talk about common concerns and regularly meet in relaxed surroundings to hear relevant talks by health professionals and discuss matters of mutual interest.

It is not, however, a medical advisory or counselling group. Meetings are held every 2 months at either:

St Peter’s Hospice The Park Centre
Charlton Road
BS10 6NL
High Street
BS15 4AE

For further information and/or to be included in newsletters please contact Rachel Warman (Upper GI Nurse Specialist, North Bristol Trust) on 0117 3402454.
